The cattle upon a thousand hills

Barnes Notes:

For every beast of the forest is mine – All the beasts that roam at large in the wilderness; all that are untamed and unclaimed by man. The idea is, that even if God “needed” such offerings, he was not dependent on them – for the numberless beasts that roamed at large as his own would yield an ample supply.

And the cattle upon a thousand hills – The idea is, that all – whether wild or tame – belonged to God, and he had a right to them, to dispose of them as he pleased. He was not, therefore, in any way dependent on sacrifices.
